Yet another former child star headed for trouble. So sad…
According to a police report, Malcom in the Middle/Agent Cody Banks star Frankie Muniz put a gun to his own head during a domestic dispute with his girlfriend on Friday night.
Apparently, the two got into an argument about "prior relationships," and then Muniz's girlfriend Elycia Turnbow claims he "grabbed a gun and held it to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide."
Here's what Frankie had to say about it:
"I grabbed the case, but not the gun … it isn't even loaded."
The police did, in fact, find a loaded gun in his house. Scary.
Following the incident, Frankie was brought to the hospital, returned home after 10 pm, and then things got increasingly heated. Elycia claims he "punched her in the back of the head, and threw her into a wall while in the downstairs bedroom."
When asked about it by police, Muniz denied it and said the following:
"I love her too much. She is the woman I want to marry."
As far as Frankie's take on the story is concerned, he claims he was sleeping and his girlfriend woke him up by "yelling at him and hitting him in the face," and while he was defending himself "Elycia fell to the ground and started to kick the bedroom door."
Frankie's gun has been impounded, and the couple were warned that they'll be arrested if anything like this occurs again.
What a shame! Hopefully Frankie will get himself together, but if he's acted like this before, he's likely to do this again, unless he gets help.
They must have some nice facilities in Arizona. Look into it, Frankie!
